In his study PEACE MAKING written in 1919, Mr. Winnail said:
THE ANGLO SAXONS ARE GIFTED WITH A LIMITLESS CAPACITY, PARTICULARLY IN INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS, FOR APPLYING MORAL CANONS TO OTHERS WHICH THEY HAVE NEVER APPLIED TO THEMSELVES.
HOW MANY ENGLISHMEN REMEMBER THAT THE BRITISH EMPIRE WAS MAINLY THE RESULT OF SUCCESSFUL NAVAL AND MILITARY ACTIONS IN ALL PARTS OF THE GLOBE?
Obviously not many of you, defenders of the mainstream narrative of lies, for according to you, only the Germans are guilty. The twisting of the truth is not very Christian, don’t you think?
Its dream of world conquest foiled…
I would have thought that this old canard would have died a peaceful death, but no, it must forever go on.
All historians of the period know that it was just propaganda. How can a nation of 80 million, the size of Arizona, go on the rampage to conquer the world?
There is of course one nation which did just that: Great Britain, but which you seem to consider justified in doing so.
Have you asked the relatives of the 5 million Irish starved to death or the 30 odd million Indians who died in the same way, or the Boers in South Africa?
The British Empire was created not to bring light to the world, but because Britain ran out of silver.
At the same time the yeomen were being thrown out of their farms to make room for extensive sheep farming by the so-called gentry.
Parliament passed a law stating that anybody loitering should be hanged, (And Debtors imprisoned) but there were so many of these unfortunates that it was found more expedient to press gang them onto ships and send them to other parts of the world to steal, rape and murder.
At that time, as now, the trade ran from the East to the West and the silver the other way round, therefore Britain having no silver mines and having plundered the Spaniards, now decided that it would be nice to go and steal the silver from the treasury of Bengal.
So they sent Clive and his fleet and found mountains of silver.
Britain was back in business for a while. And of course, since the King was God’s representative on earth, all the mayhem was done in the name of God, which of course for the victims must have been a boon. (Brooke Adams, The laws of civilization and decay)
During my stay in England in the 60’s, our history teacher stated that Germany started two wars.
I raised my hand and said that during the same period, England was involved in 28 wars.The teacher replied that those were COLONIAL wars. So I asked him if the life of an Englishman was more important than the life of a Chinese in God’s eyes….
He could not answer that one, but he did not like me so much afterwards. For this is the crux of the matter. Who gave Britain the right to trample on the people of the world?
Who gave the Zionist Anglo American Empire the right to murder the people of Iraq or Afghanistan?
Who gave a bunch of Turko- Mongol, Phallic Worshipping Khazars from the North of the Caucasus, converted to Judaism in the 9th Century AD, the right to steal the land of the Palestinians. Did God do that? For you to reply.
Will a Fourth Reich rise?
Before it can rise, the Third one must go out of existence. It never capitulated. Only the army capitulated, therefore it is still legally in existence.
The Federal Republic is not an independent country as no peace treaty was ever signed. It is just a vassal state of the Zionist Anglo American Empire. It does not even have a final constitution, only a provisional one. As to a “Europeanized”
Germany, as you put it, I do not think too many people worry about it, except the empire which controls it. In any case, it would be better than the corrupt, oppressive regime which now runs the country in the name of its imperial masters.
The “Americanized” Germany is a sick country.
It can only die or become healthy again. And it must be remembered that it is Vidkun Quisling who first proposed a European Union. The idea was taken over by the “elites” who controlled Europe after the war.
WWII began in 1939 when Adolf Hitler openly broke agreements with neighboring countries… WRONG.
WWII started in 1933, 58 days after Hitler was democratically elected to power.
All main newspapers in the world had for Headlines:
JUDEA DECLARES WAR ON GERMANY.
That declaration in fact meant that every Jew within the ambit of the Reich became an enemy alien and at the time enemy aliens were consigned to concentration camps. Ask the Japanese, Italian, Germans and others in the US of A.
In Germany, the Jewish Agencies were active till 1941 and were organising the emigration of Jews toward Palestine, the US (see US immigration statistics) and other countries.
Germany did not break agreements with its neighbouring nation as you imply. It was negotiating with POLAND for a one mile wide rail and road lik to its province of East Prussia.
The deal was almost done when Britain and reluctantly, France, under US pressure (Crypto Roosenveldt needed a war after the Great Depression) caved.
That guarantee was supposed to secure ALL the Polish borders against ALL aggression, but in fact it was aimed at Germany only.
When the Soviets invaded from the east, the guarantee had long been forgotten. With the support of the Western countries, POLAND BROKE ALL NEGOTIATIONS WITH GERMANY, MOBILISED ITS ARMY AND MARCHED TOWARD THE BORDER.
A general mobilization was deemed at the time as a declaration of war. The Poles were so sure of their victory, that they had commissioned a huge painting of the Polish president marching through the streets of Berlin.
It was found half finished when the Germans took over the presidential palace. At the same time, Polish communist irregulars were busy mass murdering the German population of the Corridor forcing Hitler to intervene to save his brethren. The rest is history.
FRANCE AND BRITAIN DECLARED WAR ON GERMANY (not the other way around).
Germany did not attack them till a year later when it had exhausted all possibilities of peace. Then its better led forces smashed the French armies.
The British contingent ran for the Channel where HITLER WHO STILL THOUGHT THAT PEACE WAS POSSIBLE, LET THE 300,000 ENGLISH SURROUNDED GO AT DUNKIRK, AS A GESTURE OF GOODWILL.
Contrary to what you have been told, Germany did not start the blitz on England.
ENGLISH BOMBERS HAD BEEN BOMBING GERMAN TOWNS WITHOUT REGARD FOR THE CIVILIAN POPULATION FOR OVER THREE MONTHS BEFORE HITLER RETALIATED.
Millions of Jews, Czechs and Poles were deported to work as slave laborers in German factories etc. There was no need for slave labour in slave factories as thousands upon thousands of Ukrainians, Poles, Czechs, French, Dutch, Belgians etc. worked WILLINGLY for the war effort.
They had the same pay and labour conditions as the German workers. A Dutch friend of mine who worked in one at the time even told me that the Jews working there were receiving Kosher food which included more proteins such as beans.
He also asked to have the same food and got it. The only sign of discrimination was that the Jews were eating with wooden spoons and non-Jews with metal spoons. He has never been able to find the reason.
As to the concentration camps, which were in fact vast industrial estates, there have been so many lies, that it has become a religion where myths must be believed under threat of the Holy Inquisition. In many countries of Europe, you are jailed just for querying aspects of the official truth.
BUT IF THE TRUTH MUST BE PROTECTED BY JAIL SENTENCES, IT CANNOT BE THE TRUTH.
The German war machine of WWII stands unequalled in modern Western civilisation for its efficiency (correct), destructiveness (wrong) and brutality (wrong), yet did so with less than 10% Military GDP spending.
(Most have seen too many Spielberg Hollywood films and Action Heroes comic books to know otherwise). The German army was efficient, there is no doubt, but it was a disciplined army.
Rape was punished by firing squad for Germans example, unlike the US and Russian armies, where it was a National Sport. After the landing in Normandy, US commanders were complaining that the French were sullen and did not want to be liberated, at least not the US way with waves of dark negroes Raping the French women. Infour years of occupation of France there were less rapes by German soldiers than in ONE WEEK of Western Allied occupation of Germany.
Paris, Rome, Brussels and all other Western towns were left untouched by the German army, while the British and US Air force razed French and German towns and the women and children sheltering them.
Germany was razed against all the tenets of the Geneva Convention regarding the treatment of civilians in war time. You can talk of brutality and destructiveness…!
Why did Germany descend into tyranny?
IT DID NOT.
The people democratically elected the National Socialist Party to power. In three years, the unemployment rate passed from 50% to 0%.
German workers had the best protective laws in Europe at the time, they were the first to enjoy paid holidays, canteens in factories, health check-ups, cruises for deserving workers.
Those laws are still in existence in Holland, so they must have been good. After the chaos of the Weimar Republic which your Mr Barzini seems to have loved so much, it was a breath of fresh air for the German people. THEY WERE FREE FROM THE SHACKLES OF VERSAILLES AND THEY HAD RECOVERED THEIR DIGNITY.
This did not please the International bankers who pushed for boycott of German goods as Hitler refused to borrow money from them. His motto was that a sovereign state should not borrow from a bank.
It can create its own money, interest free, in sufficient quantity to finance the needs of the nation. As the Western nations tried to destroy the National Socialist revolution through boycott, Germany went on to barter trade and gave a better deal to the nations of the Third World than the greedy US, Brits and French. Germany grabbed the entire South American market, which did not please the greedy nations.
As Churchill said, ‘THE UNFORGIVABLE CRIME OF GERMANY BEFORE THE SECOND WORLD WAR WAS ITS ATTEMPT TO TAKE ITS TRADE STRENGTH OUT OF THE WORLD FINANCE SYSTEM AND TO BUILD ITS SYSTEM OF GOODS FOR GOODS TRADE IN WHICH CASE WORLD FINANCE WOULD NO LONGER RECEIVE ANY PROFIT.’ (MEMOIRS)
James Baker III, Secretary of State under Reagan and Bush I said in the German magazine Der Spiegel 2/92:
‘WE PAINTED HITLER AS A MONSTER, A DEVIL AND THAT IS WHY WE COULD NOT MOVE AWAY FROM THAT PORTRAYAL AFTER THE WAR. WE HAD MOBILIZED THE MASSES AGAINST THE ‘DEVIL INCARNATE’ AND SO WE WERE FORCED TO CONTINUE IN THIS SATANTIC SCENARIO AFTER THE WAR. WE COULD NOT POSSIBLY HAVE EXPLAINED TO OUR PEOPLE THAT THE WAR HAD ACTUALLY BEEN ONLY A PREVENTATIVE ECONOMIC MEASURE!’
(That is why the best of Europe had to die.)
Lewis Wyndham stated it in a different way…
‘WHAT HERR HITLER IS REQUIRED TO DO IS TO MERGE GERMANY INTO THE LEAGUE OF MONOPOLIST STATES. THE PEACE-LOVING NATIONS ARE MORE HEAVILY ARMED THAN YOU ARE, HERR HITLER, AND HAVE UNLIMITED RESOURCES AT THEIR DISPOSAL, AND THEY WILL UNQUESTIONABLY MAKE WAR ON YOU IF YOU DO NOT SUBMIT TO THEIR WILL AND IF YOU PERSIST IN GOING ON WITH THIS SOVEREIGN STATE STUFF. Source: “County your dead: they are alive” p. 318.
In 1938, Churchill sent an open letter to Adolf Hitler:
“If England should ever suffer a national misfortune like that of Germany’s of 1918, I will pray to God to send us a man of your power of will and spirit.” The self same Churchill, seeing the rise of the Soviet Union, made this strange admission 1945: WE SLAUGHTERED THE WRONG PIG. By that time it was too late.
Tacitus wrote that German men had “no taste for peace” and spent their time in warlike pursuit…and posted a serious threat to the Roman army. It is the same argument as the Zionist Anglo Empire crowd. Only the Romans had a taste for peace and only the Anglo have it now. The Germans did not want the Romans to disturb their life.
They did not want Pax Romana, and neither do we want Pax Americana. In fact the Romans should have been grateful to those Germans as they were the backbone of the Roman army. As Brook Adams states, if the empire had been in Spain, instead of the borders of Germany, it would not have lasted very long. Cesar could overcome against Pompey’s superior number of legions because he had German warriors.
To find Germany leading the effort in uniting Europe today is not surprising as the idea has been part of German cultural heritage for more than a thousand years…. Is that a crime? Germany is the centre of Europe and it is therefore in its interest that peace prevails on the continent. England on the contrary has always been the troublemaker on the continent… Churchill in his memoirs states: ENGLAND WILL NOT TOLERATE A RISING POWER IN THE MIDDLE OF EUROPE. Any idea who was responsible for the conflict?
Why did so many Germans accept the Nationalist concept, productive policies, and supposed (and fictionalized) ‘master race’ concept of Hitler’s Third Reich? A Very strange statement indeed, as there is only One people on this Earth who thinks it is the master race.
Just read the Old Testament and you will have an idea. The same people calls the rest of us GOYIM, meaning human cattle which can be slaughtered, raped, robbed, fleeced by the Chosen of the Lord as their rightful booty. These are the real UBERMENSCH. In fact the Germans have been the most pacifist of the lot.
They did not create an empire outside their territories, except for a few pieces of Africa they inherited from the scramble. As to humility, compassion and charity, please Mr. Winnail, I am sure you find that in the British and the Americans. Ask the victims of the empire! They will tell you.
In fact Christianity should be thankful to the Germans for, when corruption threatened to overcome the Church and destroy it, it was first Alaric the Goth who saved the faith when he invaded corrupt Rome and later Martin Luther and its Reformation.
Prussia was recognized as the most thoroughly militarized power in Europe and one of the most self sufficient and prosperous. Nothing wrong with that. Militarization brings discipline and discipline brings prosperity. One could say the same of China today, while the US is floundering in a sea of iniquity. Nothing can be built without discipline. That is the reason for the success of the German nation.
As to blood and iron, I cannot quite understand your argument. How do you think the British Empire was built? What do you think George Bush is doing in Iraq? Why has the US over 700 bases all over the world? That is really the pot calling the kettle black.
It was this Prussian tradition – authoritarian, anti-democratic, militaristic and expansionist – that paved the way for the rise of Imperial Germany, the Nazis, and the military adventures, atrocities and disaters of the Third Reich.
I do not know Barzini, but the man is deluded.
Germans are great at everything they do, be it in peace or in war. In fact Germany is the only country in Europe which lost territories over the centuries. Wherever there have been German settlers, those countries prospered. In fact the largest population group in the US is that of German Americans. Those were the builders of America. The present Zionist rulers of America, on the other hand, will drag it to the ground.
As to alleged German atrocities, the numbers are coming down every year. Auschwitz for example passed from 4 million to 1.5 million to 74,000 according to the 1994 report of the International Red Cross, only 30% being Jews. Treblinka is a joke.
800 000 alleged killed in a camp with an open fence, one km from a Polish village whose inhabitants never saw a thing. These victims were supposed to have been buried in a hole 70 x 90 m and to have been exhumed and burned at the rate of 3000 a day on huge pyres nobody ever saw, not even allied surveillance planes.
The curator of the Majdanek State Museum stated in a Polish magazine that to the great maximum only 86 000 could have died in the camp, down from the original 1.5 million.
The trees of the ravine of Babi Yar in the Ukraine where up to 100 000 chosen were supposed to have been buried were exactly in the same place in 1945 as in 1939 according to aerial surveys, just bigger.
Had all those victims been buried there, the trees would have been uprooted to make place for graves. In 1991 the Yad Vashem Museum admitted that the stories of Jewish soap and tattooed skin were just propaganda.
In 2004, the Washington Holocaust Memorial Museum admitted what the prestigious French magazine stated in 1995 about Auschwitz. Everything is fake.
The alleged gas chambers shown to the public were built after the war by the communist authorities for the tourist trade. Suddenly the real one was in Birkenau and the Holocaust had shifted 11 km. Unfortunately, those buildings have no hole in the ceiling, as the legend wants it. NO HOLE, NO HOLOCAUST.
I would leave the last words on the subject to J.C. Pressac, Auschwitz expert of the Jewish Beate Klaarsfeld Foundation in Paris, author of 18 books on the camp who finally threw in the towel and said:
BUNGLING, EXAGGERATIONS, OMISSIONS AND LIES ARE THE SIGNPOST OF MOST REPORTS OF THAT EPOQUE…
IT IS INEVITABLE THAT NEW DOCUMENTS WILL COME TO LIGHT WHICH WILL SHATTER MORE AND MORE THE OFFICIAL AUSCHWITZ STORY. THE PRESENT, SEEMINGLY TRIUMPHANT PORTRAYAL OF THE UNIVERSE OF CONCENTRATION CAMPS (AUSCHWITZ) IS DESTINED TO BE DOOMED. WHAT CAN BE SAVED OF IT? VERY LITTLE!
If Germany will now rise again, there is no doubt about it.
You cannot keep a good man down. The country now rising in Europe is Russia, with its immense resources. As Russia rises further, US influence will diminish and a new Europe will be born, from Dublin to Vladivostock, which will throw out the invaders from the South. Interestingly former Chancellor Gerhardt Schroeder understood this.
He became a firm friend of Vladimir Putin. Merkel is just a puppet of the Zionist Anglo American Empire which is now in its twilight. Still dangerous, but nearly on its deathbed. Whatever the outcome, we do live in interesting times, as the Chinese curse states it so well.
I enclose a bundle of documents, which will, I hope, allow you to write with more authority on the subject and remain,

THE GERMAN NATION IS AN AGGRESSIVE NATION
A Study of War by Prof. Quincy Wright, shows that in the period from 1480 to 1940 there were 278 wars involving European countries whose percentage participation was as follows:
GERMANY (INCLUDING PRUSSIA) 8%
It is often spoken that had Germany won WW2, well, we’d ‘all be speaking German’, (as if that is somehow bad??) Instead, our descendants will soon enough be speaking Spanish, Arabic or Chinese, you fools! The truth of the matter, is that HAD Germany won WW2, there would be No Communism, No Abortion, No Feminism, No Degenerate Jewish controlled media, No Gay Marriage, No World Bank, No Pornography, No Illegal invasion into America, No culture destroying Turks or Africans flooding Europe, no credit cards, payday loans or interest charged by shyster banks, No Vatican 2.There would have been no Korean war, no theft of Palestine, no Vietnamese war, no war in Iraq or Libya or even the War on Terror to benefit Israel.

A mobil App to Help Boycott Israel?
What YOU can do to be an advocate for change.
Today, more than a year since a mobile app first gained ground, Buycott’s fastest-growing campaigns are those allowing shoppers to avoid products deemed to support Israel.
As the Israel-Gaza conflict has intensified in recent days, Buycott has seen a surge in users joining groups with names like ‘Avoid Israeli Settlement Products’ and ‘Long Live Palestine Boycott Israel.’
The latter was created in April by a British teenager, but floundered with a few hundred members through mid-July. It now counts over 220,000 shoppers as users, with its numbers climbing daily.
‘Long Live Palestine Boycott Israel’ lists 49 companies for those opposed to Israel’s policies. These include Starbucks and Sabra, makers of the bestselling hummus in the U.S., jointly owned by Israeli company Strauss and PepsiCo.

Jews directing Pilate to Crucify Christ
ST. JUSTIN, martyr stated in 116 A. D.
“The Jews were behind all the persecutions of the Christians.
They wandered through the country everywhere hating and undermining the Christian faith.”
“The Jews are enemies of God and foes of our holy religion.” ~ Padre Pio
‘Crucifiers of Christ ought to be held in continual subjection.’
~ Pope Innocent III
The Jews, who killed both the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and have persecuted us, do not please God, and they are adversaries to all men, prohibiting us from speaking to the Gentiles that they may be saved, to fill up their sin always: for the wrath of God has come upon them to the end.
~ I Thessalonians ii.14-1
‘Jews are impure and impious, and their synagogue is a house of prostitution, a lair of beasts, a place of shame and ridicule, the domicile of the devil, as is also the soul of the Jew.
As a matter of fact, Jews worship the devil: their rites are criminal and unchaste; their religion a disease; their synagogue an assembly of crooks, a den of thieves, a cavern of devils, an abyss of perdition!
God hates the Jews, and on Judgment Day He will say to those who sympathize with them., “Depart from Me, for you have had intercourse with My murderers!” Flee, then, from their assemblies, fly from their houses, and, far from venerating the synagogue, hold it in hatred and aversion.

Hitler’s Economic Miracle…’They’ do not want this discussion, obviously.
How Hitler defied the bankers
‘Following their defeat in WW1, Germany had been forced to accept a privately-owned central bank under the Treaty of Versailles. This privately-owned bank looted the
the Wiemar Republic. When Hitler came to power he kicked out the private central bankers and returned control of the currency to the government. This triggered an economic boom in Germany which would later be described as the “German Miracle” and lead to TIME Magazine making Hitler their Man of the Year for the amazing economic changes he had brought to Germany.
Those changes, of course, were a direct threat to the private central banks, both because citizens in other countries wondered why they could not have the same system of government-issued currency that was working so well for Germany (especially here in the United States, which had been started a with government-issued currency), and because nations enslaved to private central banks cannot economically compete with nations not so encumbered and plundered.
So, the cartel of private central bankers organized a global boycott against the new German monetary system almost the moment it was born, to ruin Germany and drive it back into the clutches of the private central bankers. It was this economic war that set the stage for the emergence of WW2, while the financial predations of the Rothschilds bankers became the foundation of the German peoples’ animosity towards Jews.’
Many people take joy in saying Wall Street and Jewish bankers “financed Hitler.” There is plenty of documented evidence that Wall Street and Jewish bankers did indeed help finance Hitler at first, partly because it allowed the bankers to get rich (as I will describe below) and partly in order to control Stalin. However, when Germany broke free from the bankers, the bankers declared a world war against Germany.
When we look at all the facts, the charge that “Jews financed Hitler” becomes irrelevant. Los Angeles Attorney Ellen Brown discusses this topic in her book Web Of Debt.
When Hitler came to power, Germany was hopelessly broke. The Treaty of Versailles had imposed crushing reparations on the German people, demanding that Germans repay every nation’s costs of the war. These costs totaled three times the value of all the property in Germany.
Private currency speculators caused the German mark to plummet, precipitating one of the worst runaway inflations in modern times. A wheelbarrow full of 100 billion-mark banknotes could not buy a loaf of bread. The national treasury was empty. Countless homes and farms were lost to speculators and to private (Jewish controlled) banks. Germans lived in hovels. They were starving.
Nothing like this had ever happened before – the total destruction of the national currency, plus the wiping out of people’s savings and businesses. On top of this came a global depression. Germany had no choice but to succumb to debt slavery under international (mainly Jewish) bankers until 1933, when the National Socialists came to power.
At that point the German government thwarted the international banking cartels by issuing its own money. World Jewry responded by declaring a global boycott against Germany.
Hitler began a national credit program by devising a plan of public works that included flood control, repair of public buildings and private residences, and construction of new roads, bridges, canals, and port facilities. All these were paid for with money that no longer came from the private international bankers.
The projected cost of these various programs was fixed at one billion units of the national currency. To pay for this, the German government (not the international bankers) issued bills of exchange, called Labor Treasury Certificates. In this way the National Socialists put millions of people to work, and paid them with Treasury Certificates.
Under the National Socialists, Germany’s money wasn’t backed by gold (which was owned by the international bankers). It was essentially a receipt for labor and materials delivered to the government. Hitler said, “For every mark issued, we required the equivalent of a mark’s worth of work done, or goods produced.” The government paid workers in Certificates. Workers spent those Certificates on other goods and services, thus creating more jobs for more people. In this way the German people climbed out of the crushing debt imposed on them by the international bankers.
Within two years, the unemployment problem had been solved, and Germany was back on its feet. It had a solid, stable currency, with no debt, and no inflation, at a time when millions of people in the United States and other Western countries (controlled by international bankers) were still out of work. Within five years, Germany went from the poorest nation in Europe to the richest.
Germany even managed to restore foreign trade, despite the international bankers’ denial of foreign credit to Germany, and despite the global boycott by Jewish-owned industries. Germany succeeded in this by exchanging equipment and commodities directly with other countries, using a barter system that cut the bankers out of the picture.
Germany flourished, since barter eliminates national debt and trade deficits. (Venezuela does the same thing today when it trades oil for commodities, plus medical help, and so on. Hence the bankers are trying to squeeze Venezuela.)
Hjalmar Schacht, a Rothschild agent who was temporarily head of the German central bank, summed it up thus: An American banker had commented, “Dr. Schacht, you should come to America. We’ve lots of money and that’s real banking.” Schacht replied, “You should come to Berlin. We don’t have money. That’s real banking.”
(Schacht, the Rothschild agent, actually supported the private international bankers against Germany, and was rewarded by having all charges against him dropped at the Nuremberg trials.)
This economic freedom made Hitler extremely popular with the German people. Germany was rescued from English economic theory, which says that all currency must be borrowed against the gold owned by a private and secretive banking cartel — such as the Federal Reserve, or the Central Bank of Europe — rather than issued by the government for the benefit of the people.
Canadian researcher Dr. Henry Makow (who is Jewish himself) says the main reason why the bankers arranged for a world war against Germany was that Hitler sidestepped the bankers by creating his own money, thereby freeing the German people. Worse, this freedom and prosperity threatened to spread to other nations. Hitler had to be stopped!
Makow quotes from the 1938 interrogation of C. G. Rakovsky, one of the founders of Soviet Bolshevism and a Trotsky intimate. Rakovsky was tried in show trials in the USSR under Stalin. According to Rakovsky, Hitler was at first funded by the international bankers, through the bankers’ agent Hjalmar Schacht. The bankers financed Hitler in order to control Stalin, who had usurped power from their agent Trotsky. Then Hitler became an even bigger threat than Stalin when Hitler started printing his own money.
(Stalin came to power in 1922, which was eleven years before Hitler came to power.)
“Hitler took over the privilege of manufacturing money, and not only physical moneys, but also financial ones. He took over the machinery of falsification and put it to work for the benefit of the people. Can you possibly imagine what would have come if this had infected a number of other states?
(Henry Makow, “Hitler Did Not Want War,” http://www.savethemales.com March 21, 2004).
Economist Henry C K Liu writes of Germany’s remarkable transformation:
“The Nazis came to power in 1933 when the German economy was in total collapse, with ruinous war-reparation obligations and zero prospects for foreign investment or credit. Through an independent monetary policy of sovereign credit and a full-employment public-works program, the Third Reich was able to turn a bankrupt Germany, stripped of overseas colonies, into the strongest economy in Europe within four years, even before armament spending began. (Henry C. K. Liu, “Nazism and the German Economic Miracle,” Asia Times (May 24, 2005).
In Billions for the Bankers, Debts for the People (1984), Sheldon Emry commented:
“Germany issued debt-free and interest-free money from 1935 on, which accounts for Germany’s startling rise from the depression to a world power in five years.
The German government financed its entire operations from 1935 to 1945 without gold, and without debt. It took the entire Capitalist and Communist world to destroy the German revolution, and bring Europe back under the heel of the Bankers.”
These facts do not appear in any textbooks today, since Jews own most publishing companies. What does appear is the disastrous runaway inflation suffered in 1923 by the Weimar Republic, which governed Germany from 1919 to 1933. Today’s textbooks use this inflation to twist truth into its opposite. They cite the radical devaluation of the German mark as an example of what goes wrong when governments print their own money, rather than borrow it from private cartels.
In reality, the Weimar financial crisis began with the impossible reparations payments imposed at the Treaty of Versailles. Hjalmar Schacht, the Rothschild agent who was currency commissioner for the Republic — opposed letting the German government print its own money… “The Treaty of Versailles is a model of ingenious measures for the economic destruction of Germany. Germany could not find any way of holding its head above the water, other than by the inflationary expedient of printing bank notes.”
Schacht echoes the textbook lie that Weimar inflation was caused when the German government printed its own money. However, in his 1967 book The Magic of Money, Schacht let the cat out of the bag by revealing that it was the PRIVATELY-OWNED Reichsbank, not the German government, that was pumping new currency into the economy.
Thus, the PRIVATE BANK caused the Weimar hyper-inflation.
Like the U.S. Federal Reserve, the Reichsbank was overseen by appointed government officials, but was operated for private gain. What drove the wartime inflation into hyperinflation was speculation by foreign investors, who sold the mark short, betting on its decreasing value.
In the manipulative device known as the short sale, speculators borrow something they don’t own, sell it, and then “cover” by buying it back at the lower price.
Speculation in the German mark was made possible because the PRIVATELY OWNED Reichsbank (not yet under Nazi control) made massive amounts of currency available for borrowing. This currency, like U.S. currency today, was created with accounting entries on the bank’s books.
Then the funny-money was lent at compound interest. When the Reichsbank could not keep up with the voracious demand for marks, other private banks were allowed to create marks out of nothing, and to lend them at interest. The result was runaway debt and inflation.
Thus, according to Schacht himself, the German government did not cause the Weimar hyperinflation. On the contrary, the government (under the National Socialists) got hyperinflation under control. The National Socialists put the Reichsbank under strict government regulation, and took prompt corrective measures to eliminate foreign speculation. One of those measures was to eliminate easy access to funny-money loans from private banks. Then Hitler got Germany back on its feet by having the public government issue Treasury Certificates.
Schacht , the Rothschild agent, disapproved of this government fiat money, and wound up getting fired as head of the Reichsbank when he refused to issue it. Nonetheless, he acknowledged in his later memoirs that allowing the government to issue the money it needed did not produce the price inflation predicted by classical economic theory, which says that currency must be borrowed from private cartels.
What causes hyper-inflation is uncontrolled speculation. When speculation is coupled with debt (owed to private banking cartels) the result is disaster. On the other hand, when a government issues currency in carefully measured ways, it causes supply and demand to increase together, leaving prices unaffected. Hence there is no inflation, no debt, no unemployment, and no need for income taxes.
Naturally this terrifies the bankers, since it eliminates their powers. It also terrifies Jews, since their control of banking allows them to buy the media, the government, and everything else.
1933 News Headline London Express, 7 years before WW2 commenced.
Hitler and his National Socialist government banished unemployment within four years. The number of jobless was cut from six million at the beginning of 1933, when he took power, to one million by 1936.
So rapidly was the jobless rate reduced that by 1937-38 there was a national labor shortage.
For the great mass of Germans, wages and working conditions improved steadily. From 1932 to 1938 gross real weekly earnings increased by 21 percent. After taking into account tax and insurance deductions and adjustments to the cost of living, the increase in real weekly earnings during this period was 14 percent.
At the same time, rents remained stable, and there was a relative decline in the costs of heating and light. Prices actually declined for some consumer goods, such as electrical appliances, clocks and watches, as well as for some foods. “Consumer prices rose at an average annual rate of just 1.2 percent between 1933 and 1939,” notes British historian Niall Ferguson.
“This meant that Germans workers were better off in real as well as nominal terms: between 1933 and 1938, weekly net earnings (after tax) rose by 22 percent, while the cost of living rose by just seven percent.” Even after the outbreak of war in September 1939, workers’ income continued to rise. By 1943 average hourly earnings of German workers had risen by 25 percent, and weekly earnings by 41 percent.
The “normal” work day for most Germans was eight hours, and pay for overtime work was generous.
In addition to higher wages, benefits included markedly improved working conditions, such as better health and safety conditions, canteens with subsidized hot meals, athletic fields, parks, subsidized theater performances and concerts, exhibitions, sports and hiking groups, dances, adult education courses, and subsidized tourism.
An already extensive network of social welfare programs, including old age insurance and a national health care program, was expanded.
Within a year after Hitler came to power, the German birth rate jumped by 22 percent, rising to a high point in 1938. It remained high even in 1944 — the last full year of World War II.
“In 1938 and 1939, the highest marriage rates in all of Europe were registered in Germany, superseding even those among the prolific peoples of Eastern Europe.
Germany’s crime rate fell during the Hitler years, with significant drops in the rates of murder, robbery, theft, embezzlement and petty larceny. Improvement in the health and outlook of Germans impressed many foreigners.
“Infant mortality has been greatly reduced and is considerably inferior to that in Great Britain,” wrote Sir Arnold Wilson, a British M.P. who visited Germany seven times after Hitler had come to power. “Tuberculosis and other diseases have noticeably diminished. The criminal courts have never had so little to do and the prisons have never had so few occupants.
Living in Hitler’s Germany
A letter from Hans Schmidt of GANPAC Published in the Hoskins Report, Dec. 1993 Richard Kelly Hoskins, publisher “You asked for someone who had lived in Hitler’s Germany to tell what it was like. Permit me, someone who lived under the Swastika flag from 1935, when the Saar was reunited with Germany, to 1945, to give a short answer. To be a boy or girl at that time was wonderful. In the Hitler Youth the differences between Christian denominations or the different German states didn’t count.
We all truly felt that we were members of one body of people – one nation. Youth hostels were opened all over the Reich, enabling us to hike from one beautiful town to another seeing our fatherland. Every effort was made to strengthen our minds and bodies. Contrary to what is said today, we were encouraged to become free in spirit, and not to succumb to peer (or authority) pressure. In peacetime, NO military training was allowed by the Hitler Youth leadership; scouting yes. Incidentally, to “snitch on our parents” was frowned upon.
At the very time when America’s allies, the Soviets, destroyed most of the Christian churches in Russia and Ukraine, about 2500 New Churches were built in Germany. NOT ONE Christian church was closed. It was the law that school and church had priority over service in the Hitler Youth.
As late as the fall of 1944, the Waffen SS barracks in Breslau supplied two buses to take youth to either the nearest Catholic or Protestant church every Sunday. To be a registered member of a Christian church did not prevent advancement in the National Socialist Party.
Germany was National Socialist, but free enterprise flourished during the entire Hitler years. No company was nationalized. No small businessman was stopped from opening up his own store. I myself worked during the war for a company that can only be called part of international capitalism. If you owned shares, nobody confiscated them, like the allies did in 1945.
The accomplishments of the ‘Nazis’ were incredible. Starting without money and with millions of unemployed (a third of the workforce), they constructed the entire German Autobahn road network in a short span of 6 years – almost without corruption – while seeing to it that the new road system did not unnecessarily destroy either the German landscape, or wildlife habitats and forests.
Two years after the NS were elected to power, conditions were so improved that workers had to be hired in nearby friendly countries to help alleviate the worker’s shortage in Germany. Germany was booming while Britain, France and the US were in the depths of Great Depression.
‘It was 1934, when Hitler thought about making a family car which can carry at least two adults and three children with maximum speed of 100km/h. To help the workers get cheap transportation, the VW was designed and a factory was being built for their manufacture when the war started. Also, for the common people, villages of small single family homes were erected. The monthly payments were set so low that almost anyone could afford his own house.
In Hitler’s Germany there were no homeless; no beggars. Crime was almost non existent because habitual criminals were in concentration camps. All this was reported in the newspapers and was known by everybody. The German press during the Third Reich had fewer taboos than the American press today. The only taboo I can think of evolved around Hitler, and, during the war, there was a law that prohibited “defeatism”. This was because of the negative role the German press played in the German defeat of 1918. It bears remembering that the ‘European Economic Community” was first coined by the Third Reich government. I remember many articles, both pro and con about this subject.
One should also not forget that during the war at least seven million foreign nationals (nearly 10% of the population) worked in Germany, either as voluntary workers (Dutch, Danes, French, Poles, Ukrainians come to mind), or as forced laborers or as prisoners. I know of no instance where foreigners were attacked or molested (much less killed) because they were foreigners. Speaking of the press, I have an article from 1943 in my possession that spells out how necessary friendship is between the German and Russian peoples.
Between 1933 and 1945 there was a tremendous emphasis on culture: theatres flourished; the German movie industry produced about 100 feature films per year (of which not one was anti- American. Only 50 of them can be considered pure propaganda movies).
Some the best classical recordings still extant were made in Hitler’s Germany. Actors from all over Europe, but mainly from France, Sweden and Italy were stars in German movies. Germany always loved sports, and there was no lack of opportunities to partake in any sport one liked.
The 1936 Berlin Olympics was merely a showcase of what transpired all over the Reich. In a book on these Olympics issued by the Hitler Youth that is still in my possession, Jesse Owens is shown several times and mentioned favorably. During the Schmeling boxing fights, we kids all knew of Joe Louis, the brown bomber. Nowhere did I ever read derogatory remarks about other races. Certainly the accomplishments of Germany and the Germans were given prominence, similar to ‘the ad nauseum’ statements of today that the U.S. is the land of the free, etc.
In my ten years in the Hitler Youth (actually 8, since I obviously couldn’t attend while a soldier), the Jews were never mentioned. Other sports that gripped our attention were flying (there was Hitler Youth flying training with their own sail planes), car races(British and Italian drivers dominated) and riding.
Frequently I am asked about gun control during the Hitler era. Claims are made that Hitler could take power because he disarmed the German people. That is nonsense. In Germany gun ownership was never as prevalent as it is in America. I would say that for hundreds of years one needed a gun license in order to keep a weapon.
On the other hand, my father owned an old pistol clandestinely (about which we children knew), and there were gun clubs all over the Reich. Furthermore, Germany was always a country with many excellent gunsmiths. It is doubtful that they could stay in business if the laws were too stringent.
I would surmise that while Germany was Germany (before it was ‘liberated’ by the allies) gun ownership probably was far more widespread than is acknowledged today. Laws on the books were mainly to give the police a handle to arrest criminals with guns, not the ordinary citizen. Incidentally, just as Hitler had forbidden so-called ‘punishment exercises’ in the army (the brutal methods still employed in the American army), so had he forbidden the use of clubs by the police. He considered it demeaning to the German people. (The age to own guns was lowered to 18 under Hitler)
Finally this: I don’t believe I’ll ever see again a people as happy and content as were the great majority of Germans under Hitler, especially in peacetime. Certainly some minorities suffered: former parliamentary politicians – because they couldn’t play their political games; the Jews – because they lost their power over Germany; the gypsies – because during the war they were required to work; and crooked union bosses – because they lost their parasitical positions. To this day I believe that the happiness of the majority of a people is more important than the well-being of a few spoiled minorities.
In school, there should be emphasis on promoting the best and the intelligent, as was done in Germany during the Hitler years – a fact that contributed after the war to the rapid German reconstruction.
That Hitler was loved by his people, there can be no question. Even a few week’s before the war’s end and his death, he was able to drive to the front and mingle among the combat soldiers with only minimum security. None of the soldiers had to unload their weapons before meeting with the Fuhrer (as was required when President Bush met with American soldiers during the Gulf War). Germany under Hitler was quite different from what the media had you believe.’

British Girls in the Third Reich: ‘We Had the Time of Our Lives’
In the 1930s, many English families sent their daughters to finishing school in Nazi Germany. Rachel Johnson, sister of the London mayor, interviewed several for her most recent book. She told SPIEGEL ONLINE about Britain’s enthusiasm for Hitler’s Reich. In February 1936, Daphne and Betsy, two girls from Oxford, discover the charms of Munich in Nazi Germany.
Rachel Johnson, 47, tells the unique story of young British women in Hitler’s Third Reich from the perspective of two fictional characters. The British press has praised the book for being both entertaining and historically accurate.’ “Sending your daughters to finishing school in Germany was the thing to do,” says Johnson. Fans of Oswald Mosely, founder of the British Union in 1934.
So lets stop with the Judeo Bullsh*t.
Do these people really look miserable to you, with the yoke of Jewrys Usury and degeneracy taken off of their necks?
ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Social Programs: German folks were bestowed by vacation trips, Fixed Weekly Work week, employment programs, public-health campaign and other unprecedented beneficial services to reform their lives.
Music Promotion: In an attempt to synchronize the culture on musical platform, Reichmusikkammer (State Music Institute) was founded in 1933, just after the Nazi came into power. This institute was formulated to promote the legendary work of masterminded composers – Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms, Wagner etc.
In order to preserve the rich cultural heritage of ancient Germany, the Nazi government promoted youngsters to adopt music as a career. It is a matter of fact that jazz, swing and sexually suggestive type of musics were banned.
Family Values: Maintaining the traditional family value was the principle doctrine of Nazi Germany because they think that there was something special in children, in family and in the togetherness. Hitler was widely admired for his high-record-for-mother attitude. Poor families were helped by financial incentives whereas family allowances, marriage loans and child subsidies were provided equally to each and every segment of society. Incidentally, Birth rates set new records in Germany and abortion was made illegal. A sign of great times..
The role of women Nazi philosophy believed that women had a specific role. Discouraged from the workplace, seen as vital to a functional family, their job was to be mothers, organise the home and produce children, a role GOD made women perfect for. Their role was referred to as the ‘Three Ks’: Kinder, Kirche, Kuche (children, church, cooking). Furthermore, men and women were encouraged to marry, by being given loans, equivalent to half a year’s pay. If they produced more than four children, the loan did Not have to be repaid.
In addition, they were awarded a bronze medal. Couples who had Six children were awarded a silver medal and those with Eight got a gold. Germany believed it was important for a woman to choose a husband of the Same Blood, keep in good health, and be physically fit in order to have children.
They were also encouraged to wear traditional dress. It wasnt exactly slugging it out in Corporate AmeriKa in the real world, like US feminized women.

Low Crime: Adolf Hitler adopted all means to keep away social misfits and criminal elements from his land. In order to encourage a peaceful lifestyle, Hitler banned general strikes on the city streets. By all accounts of historians, during the Nazi period, it was safe to walk on streets at night. Criminals were put into work camps and were punished to the full extent of the law.
Preservation Of Animals and Animal Rights:
Barbaric Kosher Slaughtering was Outlawed Leaders of Nazi Party were patrons of animal protection and that’s why they adopted standardized parameters to ensure the security of animals in their regime.
Mishandling an animal was considered as a heinous crime and if someone was discovered treating them like a pulseless property, then he/she was straightforwardly sent to concentration camps. Hitler, himself, was a great admirer of animals and was widely popular for his fascinating relationship with Blondi, his German Shepherd dog. Barbaric Kosher Slaughtering was outlawed.
Improved Economy: Unemployment went from 50% to 0%. Standard of Living was the Highest in the World. As were birth rates. Before the leadership of Hitler, German economy looked dispirited due to the draconic conditions of Treaty of Versailles and prewar industrialism.
Despite the Great Depression, Hitler declined the interest rates and formulated some of the ‘craziest’ ideas to increase employment by fortifying the infrastructure development (and getting Jews OUT of Banking).
Entrepreneurship was widely valued in Nazi regime and industries were benefited by the economic policies. In return, business leaders affirmed the economic strategies of the Nazi government.
Autobahn: The idea of highway system was given by the Nazi and till the date they are admired for dispersing the network of roads to get you somewhere faster without a speed limit. Right after the Nazi takeover of 1933, Hitler bosomed the idea of interstate highway system with sophisticated engineering.
This ambitious project was the best tool to eradicate unemployment and to cater mobility for the motion of motorized land forces. Using state-of-the-art technology, the highways were made without a single pothole with free resistance surfaces and gentle curves.
Black US Olympian Gold medalist Jesse Owens remarked that he was treated more kindly and respectfully in Germany than in America (1936). Germany dominated the Olympics in almost every category.

For Declaring War On Germany in 1933 and their subversion in working as a 5th column, Jews were forbidden from working in Banking, Government, Education and the Judiciary. Hitler had this sign hung at Auschwitz which translates into: Work Makes You Free.
International Chess Champion Bobby Fisher explained that Hitler had a wicked sense of humour, and this is the real reason Jews hate Hitler to this day. Yes, Jews were thrown our of Banking, Judiciary and Government positions as they collectively declared war ON Germany in 1933 and supported Marxism and another Bolshevik Revolution. Banking Tycoon Louis Rothschild was Jailed and Put Into Prison.

Shantytown That Hitler freed his people and transformed Germany into a booming empire and economic powerhouse is perhaps the most closely guarded secret of modern times, and no doubt a big reason for many of the lies told about him in the mainstream and alternative media alike. How he accomplished this is simple: he dismantled the Jewish banking system and issued debt-free currency. He kicked the Jews out of the media and every other position of power. International Jewry could not afford to let Hitler teach the world that the secret to building a free and prosperous nation is to get rid of the parasitic Jews, so, in their eyes, Germany had to be destroyed, and any memory of this man’s heroic deeds needed to be ruthlessly suppressed for all time. “Mr. Speaker, I regard it as a pity that there are Americans who love to fawn upon the money Jews and to flatter them. Some of these unfortunates are under obligations to Jewish money changers and dare not cross them…. Mr. Chairman, I see no reason why citizens of the United States should be terrorized into surrendering their property to the International Bankers who own and control the Federal Reserve. It was not accidental, the 1929 stock-market “crash”. It was a carefully contrived occurrence. The international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so that they might emerge as rulers of us all. You have witnessed the unlawful seizure by Franklin D. Roosevelt of gold reserves and other values belonging to the people of the United States, the destruction of banks, the attempted whitewashing of the Federal Reserve Board and Federal Reserve banks, the corruption of which he admitted in his campaign harangues; and you may have noticed that what was confiscated is not in the hands of the present constitutional Government but in the hands of the international bankers who are the nucleus of the new government Roosevelt is seeking to establish here. The Federal Reserve (Banks) are one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever seen. There is not a man within the sound of my voice who does not know that this Nation is run by the International Bankers.” -Congressman Louis T. McFadden Congressional Record 1934
Jean-Marie Le Pen given suspended jail term for saying Nazi occupation of France ‘wasn’t particularly inhumane’ Le Pen said nothing but the truth about the German occupation in France, of course the average French citizen resented the occupation (as any normal person doesn’t like to see his own country under the control of a foreign power) but it was a quite civilized occupation.
Some years ago he stated that the holocaust has been exaggerated and was only a minor event of the WW2. Again, objectively he said the truth but was condemned to pay a fine of 180,000 € for that. Because France had a very rich and productive primary sector it is estimated the country contributed up to 1/3 of the German war effort, in fact it was a time when French economy flourished, the industrials, farmers and traders were well happy, business was going extremely well, the Germans bought (paid for) all the production.
Some very interesting pics about the German occupation in France: The “Cafés”, bistrôts and Restaurants in Paris were always full of Germans and French couples, life was not much different from ‘normal’ times, perhaps better.

The Irish Slave Trade – The Forgotten “White” Slaves
The Slaves That Time Forgot
By John Martin
Global Research, January 27, 2013
‘They came as slaves; vast human cargo transported on tall British ships bound for the Americas. They were shipped by the hundreds of thousands and included men, women, and even the youngest of children.
Whenever they rebelled or even disobeyed an order, they were punished in the harshest ways. Slave owners would hang their human property by their hands and set their hands or feet on fire as one form of punishment. They were burned alive and had their heads placed on pikes in the marketplace as a warning to other captives.
We don’t really need to go through all of the gory details, do we? We know all too well the atrocities of the African slave trade.
But, are we talking about African slavery? King James II and Charles I also led a continued effort to enslave the Irish. Britain’s famed Oliver Cromwell furthered this practice of dehumanizing one’s next door neighbor.
The Irish slave trade began when James I sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.
Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white.
From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well.
During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.
Many people today will avoid calling the Irish slaves what they truly were: Slaves. They’ll come up with terms like “Indentured Servants” to describe what occurred to the Irish. However, in most cases from the 17th and 18th centuries, Irish slaves were nothing more than human cattle.
As an example, the African slave trade was just beginning during this same period. It is well recorded that African slaves, not tainted with the stain of the hated Catholic theology and more expensive to purchase, were often treated far better than their Irish counterparts.
African slaves were very expensive during the late 1600s (50 Sterling). Irish slaves came cheap (no more than 5 Sterling). If a planter whipped or branded or beat an Irish slave to death, it was never a crime. A death was a monetary setback, but far cheaper than killing a more expensive African. The English masters quickly began breeding the Irish women for both their own personal pleasure and for greater profit.
Children of slaves were themselves slaves, which increased the size of the master’s free workforce. Even if an Irish woman somehow obtained her freedom, her kids would remain slaves of her master. Thus, Irish moms, even with this new found emancipation, would seldom abandon their kids and would remain in servitude.
In time, the English thought of a better way to use these women (in many cases, girls as young as 12) to increase their market share: The settlers began to breed Irish women and girls with African men to produce slaves with a distinct complexion. These new “mulatto” slaves brought a higher price than Irish livestock and, likewise, enabled the settlers to save money rather than purchase new African slaves.
This practice of interbreeding Irish females with African men went on for several decades and was so widespread that, in 1681, legislation was passed “forbidding the practice of mating Irish slave women to African slave men for the purpose of producing slaves for sale.” In short, it was stopped only because it interfered with the profits of a large slave transport company.
England continued to ship tens of thousands of Irish slaves for more than a century. Records state that, after the 1798 Irish Rebellion, thousands of Irish slaves were sold to both America and Australia. There were horrible abuses of both African and Irish captives. One British ship even dumped 1,302 slaves into the Atlantic Ocean so that the crew would have plenty of food to eat.
There is little question that the Irish experienced the horrors of slavery as much (if not more in the 17th Century) as the Africans did. There is, also, very little question that those brown, tanned faces you witness in your travels to the West Indies are very likely a combination of African and Irish ancestry. In 1839, Britain finally decided on it’s own to end it’s participation in Satan’s highway to hell and stopped transporting slaves. While their decision did not stop pirates from doing what they desired, the new law slowly concluded THIS chapter of nightmarish Irish misery.
But, if anyone, black or white, believes that slavery was only an African experience, then they’ve got it completely wrong. Irish slavery is a subject worth remembering, not erasing from our memories. But, where are our public (and PRIVATE) schools???? Where are the history books? Why is it so seldom discussed? Do the memories of hundreds of thousands of Irish victims merit more than a mention from an unknown writer?
Or is their story to be one that their English pirates intended: To (unlike the African book) have the Irish story utterly and completely disappear as if it never happened. None of the Irish victims ever made it back to their homeland to describe their ordeal. These are the lost slaves; the ones that time and biased history books conveniently forgot.’

From: Save Your White Heritage Website:
The Irish in Colonial America were considered Nigge*s Turned Inside Out”
“Negro slavery was efficiently established in colonial America because Black slaves were governed, organized and controlled by the structures and organization that were first used to enslave and control Whites. Black slaves were ‘late comers fitted into a system already developed.'”
(Michael Hoffman, They Were White and They Were Slaves and Ulrich B. Phillips, Life and Labor in the Old South, pp. 25, 26)
Oscar Handlin says that..
“Through the first three-quarters of the 17th century, the Negroes, even in the South, were not numerous…They came into a society in which a large part of the White population was to some degree unfree…The Negroes lack of freedom was not unusual. These Black newcomers, like so many others, were accepted, bought and held, as kinds of servants.”
White slaves were owned by Negroes and Indians to such an extent in the South that the Virginia Assembly passed a law against the practice! “It is enacted that noe negro or Indian though baptized and enjoyned their owne ffreedome shall be capable of any such purchase of christians…”
Christians meant Irish Whites
Statutes of the Virginia Assembly, Vol. 2, pp. 280-81)
Some say that the Blacks were slaves, the Whites were servants. Historical documents proves this to be false
In the original documents of the White merchants who transported negroes from Africa for the slave markets the Blacks were called servants
“…one notes that the Company of Royal Adventurers referred to their cargo as ‘Negers,’ ‘Negro-servants,’ ‘servants…from Africa…”
(Handlin. p. 205)
Irish Slave Facts:
The Irish slave trade began when James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat (70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves at this time). From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and over 300,000 were sold as slaves.
Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were forcibly taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. Another 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia while 30,000 Irish men were sold to the highest bidder.
In 1656, Oliver Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers. African slaves were very expensive (50 Sterling), had to be transported long distances and paid for not only in Africa but in the New World. Irish slaves were cheap (no more than 5 Sterling) and most often were either kidnapped from Ireland, prisoners or forcibly removed. They could be worked to death, whipped or branded without it being a crime. Many, many times they were beat to death and while the death of an Irish slave was a monetary setback, it was far cheaper than the death of an expensive African. Therefore, African slaves were treated much better in Colonial America.
The importation of Irish slaves continued well into the eighteenth century, long after the importation of African slaves became the norm. Records state that after the 1798 Irish Rebellion, thousands of Irish slaves were sold to both America and Australia. Irish slavery didn’t end until Britain decided to end slavery in 1839 and stopped transporting slaves.
The enactment of 1652 in the British Isles: “it may be lawful for two or more justices of the peace within any county, citty or towne, corporate belonging to the commonwealth to from tyme to tyme by warrant cause to be apprehended, seized on and detained all and every person or persons that shall be found begging and vagrant.. in any towne, parish or place to be conveyed into the Port of London, or unto any other port from where such person or persons may be shipped into a forraign collonie or plantation.”
The judges of Edinburgh Scotland during the years 1662-1665 ordered the enslavement and shipment to the colonies a large number of rogues and others who made life unpleasant for the British upper class. [B](Register for the Privy Council of Scotland, third series, vol. 1, p 181, vol. 2, p 101).

White slaves were owned by Negroes and Indians to such an extent in the South that the Virginia Assembly passed a law against the practice! “It is enacted that noe negro or Indian though baptized and enjoyned their owne ffreedome shall be capable of any such purchase of christians…” Christians meant Whites Statutes of the Virginia Assembly, Vol. 2, pp. 280-81) Oscar Handlin says that “Through the first three-quarters of the 17th century, the Negroes, even in the South, were not numerous…
They came into a society in which a large part of the White population was to some degree unfree… The Negroes lack of freedom was not unusual. These Black newcomers, like so many others, were accepted, bought and held, as kinds of servants.” He goes on to say that the desire for cheap labor caused the elite merchants and land owners to enslave not only the negroes but their own White kindred as well Blacks were much more expensive than Whites, Therefore, Whites were mistreated more often than blacks.
During the Colonial period, Whites did the harder work, such as digging ditches, clearing land, and felling trees. The frontier demands for this kind of heavy manual labor was satisfied primarily by White slaves As late as 1669 those who had large scale plantations were manning them with White slaves, not negroes. That’s the way it was done in the mother country, Great Britain!
In 1670 the Governor of Virginia said that he had 2000 Negro and 6000 White slaves. Hundreds of thousands of Whites in colonial America were owned outright by their masters and died in slavery. Even the blacks knew this. If they were made to work too hard they accused their masters of “treating them like the Irish”

Two years ago, Prime Minister Paul Keating of Australia refused to show “proper respect” to Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II during her state visit. In response, Terry Dicks, a Conservative member of the British Parliament said, “It’s a country of ex-convicts, so we should not be surprised by the rudeness of their prime minister.”
A slur such as this would be considered unthinkable if it were uttered against any other class or race of people except the descendants of White slavery. Dicks’ remark is not only offensive, it is ignorant and false. Most of Australia’s “convicts” were shipped into servitude for such “crimes” as stealing seven yards of lace, cutting trees on an aristocrat’s estate or poaching sheep to feed a starving family.
The arrogant disregard for the holocaust visited upon the poor and working class Whites of Britain by the aristocracy continues in our time because the history of that epoch has been almost completely extirpated from our collective memory. When White servitude is acknowledged as having existed in America, it is almost always termed as temporary “indentured servitude” or part of the convict trade, which, after the Revolution of 1776, centered on Australia instead of America.
The “convicts” transported to America under the 1723 Waltham Act, perhaps numbered 100,000. The indentured servants who served a tidy little period of 4 to 7 years polishing the master’s silver and china and then taking their place in colonial high society, were a minuscule fraction of the great unsung hundreds of thousands of White slaves who were worked to death in this country from the early l7th century onward. Up to one-half of all the arrivals in the American colonies were Whites slaves and they were America’s first slaves.
These Whites were slaves for life, long before Blacks ever were. This slavery was even hereditary. White children born to White slaves were enslaved too. Whites were auctioned on the block with children sold and separated from their parents and wives sold and separated from their husbands. Free Black property owners strutted the streets of northern and southern American cities while White slaves were worked to death in the sugar mills of Barbados and Jamaica and the plantations of Virginia.
The Establishment has created the misnomer of “indentured servitude” to explain away and minimize the fact of White slavery. But bound Whites in early America called themselves slaves. Nine-tenths of the White slavery in America was conducted without indentures of any kind but according to the so-called “custom of the country,” as it was known, which was lifetime slavery administered by the White slave merchants themselves. In George Sandys laws for Virginia, Whites were enslaved “forever.”
The service of Whites bound to Berkeley’s Hundred was deemed “perpetual.” These accounts have been policed out of the much touted “standard reference works” such as Abbott Emerson Smith’s laughable whitewash, Colonists in Bondage. I challenge any researcher to study 17th century colonial America, sifting the documents, the jargon and the statutes on both sides of the Atlantic and one will discover that White slavery was a far more extensive operation than Black enslavement.
It is when we come to the 18th century that one begins to encounter more “servitude” on the basis of a contract of indenture. But even in that period there was kidnapping of Anglo-Saxons into slavery as well as convict slavery. In 1855, Frederic Law Olmsted, the landscape architect who designed New York’s Central Park, was in Alabama on a pleasure trip and saw bales of cotton being thrown from a considerable height into a cargo ship’s hold. The men tossing the bales somewhat recklessly into the hold were Negroes, the men in the hold were Irish. Olmsted inquired about this to a shipworker.
“Oh,” said the worker, “the niggers are worth too much to be risked here; if the Paddies are knocked overboard or get their backs broke, nobody loses anything.” Before British slavers traveled to Africa’s western coast to buy Black slaves from African chieftains, they sold their own White working class kindred (“the surplus poor” as they were known) from the streets and towns of England, into slavery. Tens of thousands of these White slaves were kidnapped children. In fact the very origin of the word kidnapped is kid-nabbed, the stealing of White children for enslavement.
According to the English Dictionary of the Underworld, under the heading kidnapper is the following definition: “A stealer of human beings, esp. of children; originally for exportation to the plantations of North America.” The center of the trade in child-slaves was in the port cities of Britain and Scotland: “Press gangs in the hire of local merchants roamed the streets, seizing ‘by force such boys as seemed proper subjects for the slave trade.’ Children were driven in flocks through the town and confined for shipment in barns…
So flagrant was the practice that people in the countryside about Aberdeen avoided bringing children into the city for fear they might be stolen; and so widespread was the collusion of merchants, shippers, suppliers and even magistrates that the man who exposed it was forced to recant and run out of town.” (Van der Zee, Bound Over, p. 210). White slaves transported to the colonies suffered a staggering loss of life in the 17th and 18th century.
During the voyage to America it was customary to keep the White slaves below deck for the entire nine to twelve week journey. A White slave would be confined to a hole not more than sixteen feet long, chained with 50 other men to a board, with padlocked collars around their necks. The weeks of confinement below deck in the ship’s stifling hold often resulted in outbreaks of contagious disease which would sweep through the “cargo” of White “freight” chained in the bowels of the ship.
Ships carrying White slaves to America often lost half their slaves to death. According to historian Sharon V. Salinger, “Scattered data reveal that the mortality for [White] servants at certain times equaled that for [Black] slaves in the ‘middle passage,’ and during other periods actually exceeded the death rate for [Black] slaves.” Salinger reports a death rate of ten to twenty percent over the entire 18th century for Black slaves on board ships enroute to America compared with a death rate of 25% for White slaves enroute to America. Foster R. Dulles writing in Labor in America: A History, states that whether convicts, children ‘spirited’ from the countryside or political prisoners, White slaves “experienced discomforts and sufferings on their voyage across the Atlantic that paralleled the cruel hardships.
“To Hell or Barbados” by Sean O’Callaghan.
Over 50,000 men, women and children (including the elderly and priests) were shipped from Ireland to Barbados and Virginia between 1652 and 1659. In the early days, some signed what were called ‘indentures’, agreeing to work on plantations in the belief that they would be given their own plot of land once their term of employment was over.
However, in 1652, an order was granted allowing the Commissioner of Ireland to round up anyone who was seen as a ‘danger’ to the Commonwealth, leading to men of all ranks – from landowner to soldier to farmer – being captured and shipped abroad. With such a large number of men now gone, there were too many women left behind and so a further order was made allowing for them to be sent to Virginia or New England to work.
Some plantation owners were also very keen to have Irish women shipped over to them on the islands. It could take up to ten weeks to cross the Atlantic in the slave ships, with many of those on board (up to one in five according to Monaghan) dying en route. Those that survived were sold on arrival to plantation owners; the merchants earning cash, tobacco, cotton or some other colonial cargo.
The first slaves imported into the American colonies were 100 White children. They arrived during Easter, 1619

Part 2 The Irish Slaves Irish Slavery by James F. Cavanaugh
There are a great many K/Cavanaughs in North America who trace their ancestry back to a Charles Cavanaugh, who arrived in Barbados in the first place.
The answer takes us down a revolting path wandering through one of the most insensitive and savage episodes in history, where the greed and avarice of the English monarchy systematically planned the genocide of the Irish, for commercial profit, and executed a continuing campaign to destroy all traces of Irish social, cultural and religious being. As the topic was politically sensitive, little has been written about this attempted genocide of the Irish, and what has been written has been camouflaged because it is an ugly and painfully brutal story. But the story should be told.
Transportation and Banishment
If Queen Elizabeth I had lived in the 20th Century. she would have been viewed with the same horror as Hitler and Stalin.
Her policy of Irish genocide was pursued with such evil zest it boggles the mind of modern men. But Elizabeth was only setting the stage for the even more savage program that was to follow her, directed specifically to exterminate the Irish. James II and Charles I continued Elizabeth’s campaign, but Cromwell almost perfected it. Few people in modern so-called “civilized history” can match the horrors of Cromwell in Ireland.
It is amazing what one man can do to his fellow man under the banner that God sanctions his actions! During the reign of Elizabeth I, English privateers captured 300 African Negroes, sold them as slaves, and initiated the English slave trade. Slavery was, of course, an old established commerce dating back into earliest history.
Julius Caesar brought over a million slaves from defeated armies back to Rome. By the 16th century, the Arabs were the most active, generally capturing native peoples, not just Africans, marching them to a seaport and selling them to ship owners. Dutch, Portuguese and Spanish ships were originally the most active, supplying slaves to the Spanish colonies in America. It was not a big business in the beginning, but a very profitable one, and ship owners were primarily interested only in profits.
The morality of selling human beings was never a factor to them. After the Battle of Kinsale at the beginning of the 17th century, the English were faced with a problem of some 30,000 military prisoners (Irish freedom fighters), which they solved by creating an official policy of banishment.
Other Irish leaders had voluntarily exiled to the continent, in fact, the Battle of Kinsale marked the beginning of the so-called “Wild Geese”, those Irish banished from their homeland. Banishment, however, did not solve the problem entirely, so James II encouraged selling the Irish as slaves to planters and settlers in the New World colonies. The first Irish slaves were sold to a settlement on the Amazon River In South America in 1612.
It would probably be more accurate to say that the first “recorded” sale of Irish slaves was in 1612, because the English, who were noted for their meticulous record keeping, simply did not keep track of things Irish, whether it be goods or people, unless such was being shipped to England. The disappearance of a few hundred or a few thousand Irish was not a cause for alarm, but rather for rejoicing. Who cared what their names were anyway, they were gone. Almost as soon as settlers landed in America, English privateers showed up with a good load of slaves to sell.
The first load of African slaves brought to Virginia arrived at Jamestown in 1619. English shippers, with royal encouragement, partnered with the Dutch to try and corner the slave market to the exclusion of the Spanish and Portuguese. The demand was greatest in the Spanish occupied areas of Central and South America, but the settlement of North America moved steadily ahead, and the demand for slave labor grew.
The Proclamation of 1625 ordered that Irish political prisoners be transported overseas and sold as laborers to English planters, who were settling the islands of the West Indies, officially establishing a policy that was to continue for two centuries. In 1629 a large group of Irish men and women were sent to Guiana, and by 1632, Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat in the West Indies.
By 1637 a census showed that 69% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves, which records show was a cause of concern to the English planters. But there were not enough political prisoners to supply the demand, so every petty infraction carried a sentence of transporting, and slaver gangs combed the country sides to kidnap enough people to fill out their quotas. Although African Negroes were better suited to work in the semi-tropical climates of the Caribbean, they had to be purchased, while the Irish were free for the catching, so to speak. It is not surprising that Ireland became the biggest source of livestock for the English slave trade.
The Confederation War broke out in Kilkenny in 1641, as the Irish attempted to throw out the English yet again, something that seem to happen at least once every generation. Sir Morgan Cavanaugh of Clonmullen, one of the leaders, was killed during a battle in 1646, and his two sons, Daniel and Charles (later Colonel Charles) continued with the struggle until the uprising was crushed by Cromwell in 1649.
In the 12 year period during and following the Confederation revolt, from 1641 to 1652, over 550,000 Irish were killed by the English and 300,000 were sold as slaves, as the Irish population of Ireland fell from 1,466,000 to 616,000. Banished soldiers were not allowed to take their wives and children with them, and naturally, the same for those sold as slaves. The result was a growing population of homeless women and children, who being a public nuisance, were likewise rounded up and sold. But the worse was yet to come.
In 1649, (J E W Lackey) Cromwell landed in Ireland and attacked Drogheda, slaughtering some 30,000 Irish living in the city. Cromwell reported: “I do not think 30 of their whole number escaped with their lives. Those that did are in safe custody in the Barbados.” A few months later, in 1650, 25,000 Irish were sold to planters in St. Kitt. During the 1650s decade of Cromwell’s Reign of Terror, over 100,000 Irish children, generally from 10 to 14 years old, were taken from Catholic parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In fact, more Irish were sold as slaves to the American colonies and plantations from 1651 to 1660 than the total existing “free” population of the Americas!
But all did not go smoothly with Cromwell’s extermination plan, as Irish slaves revolted in Barbados in 1649. They were hanged, drawn and quartered and their heads were put on pikes, prominently displayed around Bridgetown as a warning to others. Cromwell then fought two quick wars against the Dutch in 1651, and thereafter monopolized the slave trade. Four years later he seized Jamaica from Spain, which then became the center of the English slave trade in the Caribbean.
Irish Slaves on Barbados Sugar Plantation On 14 August 1652, Cromwell began his Ethnic Cleansing of Ireland, ordering that the Irish were to be transported overseas, starting with 12,000 Irish prisoners sold to Barbados. The infamous “Connaught or Hell” proclamation was issued on 1 May 1654, where all Irish were ordered to be removed from their lands and relocated west of the Shannon or be transported to the West Indies.
Those who have been to County Clare, a land of barren rock will understand what an impossible position such an order placed the Irish. A local sheep owner claimed that Clare had the tallest sheep in the world, standing some 7 feet at the withers, because in order to live, there was so little food, they had to graze at 40 miles per hour. With no place to go and stay alive, the Irish were slow to respond. This was an embarrassing problem as Cromwell had financed his Irish expeditions through business investors, who were promised Irish estates as dividends, and his soldiers were promised freehold land in exchange for their services.
To speed up the relocation process, a reinforcing law was passed on 26 June 1657 stating: “Those who fail to transplant themselves into Connaught or Co Clare within six months… Shall be attained of high treason… are to be sent into America or some other parts beyond the seas… those banished who return are to suffer the pains of death as felons by virtue of this act, without benefit of Clergy.” Although it was not a crime to kill any Irish, and soldiers were encouraged to do so, the slave trade proved too profitable to kill off the source of the product.
Privateers and chartered shippers sent gangs out with quotas to fill, and in their zest as they scoured the countryside, they inadvertently kidnapped a number of English too. On March 25, 1659, a petition of 72 Englishmen was received in London, claiming they were illegally “now in slavery in the Barbados”’ . The petition also claimed that “7,000-8,000 Scots taken prisoner at the battle of Worcester in 1651 were sold to the British plantations in the New World,” and that “200 Frenchmen had been kidnapped, concealed and sold in Barbados for 900 pounds of cotton each.” Subsequently some 52,000 Irish, mostly women and sturdy boys and girls, were sold to Barbados and Virginia alone.
Another 30,000 Irish men and women were taken prisoners and ordered transported and sold as slaves. In 1656, Cromwell’s Council of State ordered that 1000 Irish girls and 1000 Irish boys be rounded up and taken to Jamaica to be sold as slaves to English planters. As horrendous as these numbers sound, it only reflects a small part of the evil program, as most of the slaving activity was not recorded. There were no tears shed amongst the Irish when Cromwell died in 1660. The Irish welcomed the restoration of the monarchy, with Charles II duly crowned, but it was a hollow expectation.
After reviewing the profitability of the slave trade, Charles II chartered the Company of Royal Adventurers in 1662, which later became the Royal African Company. The Royal Family, including Charles II, the Queen Dowager and the Duke of York, then contracted to supply at least 3000 slaves annually to their chartered company. They far exceeded their quotas. There are records of Irish sold as slaves in 1664 to the French on St. Bartholomew, and English ships which made a stop in Ireland enroute to the Americas, typically had a cargo of Irish to sell on into the 18th century. Few people today realize that from 1600 to 1699, far more Irish were sold as slaves than Africans.
Slaves or Indentured Servants
There has been a lot of whitewashing of the Irish slave trade, partly by not mentioning it, and partly by labeling slaves as indentured servants. There were indeed indentureds, including English, French, Spanish and even a few Irish. But there is a great difference between the two. Indentures bind two or more parties in mutual obligations. Servant indentures were agreements between an individual and a shipper in which the individual agreed to sell his services for a period of time in exchange for passage, and during his service, he would receive proper housing, food, clothing, and usually a piece of land at the end of the term of service.
It is believed that some of the Irish that went to the Amazon settlement after the Battle of Kinsale and up to 1612 were exiled military who went voluntarily, probably as indentureds to Spanish or Portuguese shippers. However, from 1625 onward the Irish were sold, pure and simple as slaves.
There were no indenture agreements, no protection, no choice. They were captured and originally turned over to shippers to be sold for their profit. Because the profits were so great, generally 900 pounds of cotton for a slave, the Irish slave trade became an industry in which everyone involved (except the Irish) had a share of the profits.
Although the Africans and Irish were housed together and were the property of the planter owners, the Africans received much better treatment, food and housing. In the British West Indies the planters routinely tortured white slaves for any infraction. Owners would hang Irish slaves by their hands and set their hands or feet afire as a means of punishment. To end this barbarity, Colonel William Brayne wrote to English authorities in 1656 urging the importation of Negro slaves on the grounds that, “as the planters would have to pay much more for them, they would have an interest in preserving their lives, which was wanting in the case of (Irish)….” many of whom, he charged, were killed by overwork and cruel treatment. African Negroes cost generally about 20 to 50 pounds Sterling, compared to 900 pounds of cotton (about 5 pounds Sterling) for an Irish.
They were also more durable in the hot climate, and caused fewer problems. The biggest bonus with the Africans though, was they were NOT Catholic, and any heathen pagan was better than an Irish Papist. Irish prisoners were commonly sentenced to a term of service, so theoretically they would eventually be free. In practice, many of the slavers sold the Irish on the same terms as prisoners for servitude of 7 to 10 years.
There was no racial consideration or discrimination, you were either a freeman or a slave, but there was aggressive religious discrimination, with the Pope considered by all English Protestants to be the enemy of God and civilization, and all Catholics heathens and hated.
Irish Catholics were not considered to be Christians. On the other hand, the Irish were literate, usually more so than the plantation owners, and thus were used as house servants, account keepers, scribes and teachers. But any infraction was dealt with the same severity, whether African or Irish, field worker or domestic servant. Floggings were common, and if a planter beat an Irish slave to death, it was not a crime, only a financial loss, and a lesser loss than killing a more expensive African. Parliament passed the Act to Regulate Slaves on British Plantations in 1667, designating authorized punishments to include whippings and brandings for slave offenses against a Christian.
Irish Catholics were not considered Christians, even if they were freemen. The planters quickly began breeding the comely Irish women, not just because they were attractive, but because it was profitable,,, as well as pleasurable. Children of slaves were themselves slaves, and although an Irish woman may become free, her children were not. Naturally, most Irish mothers remained with their children after earning their freedom.
Planters then began to breed Irish women with African men to produce more slaves who had lighter skin and brought a higher price. The practice became so widespread that in 1681, legislation was passed “forbidding the practice of mating Irish slave women to African slave men for the purpose of producing slaves for sale.” This legislation was not the result of any moral or racial consideration, but rather because the practice was interfering with the profits of the Royal African Company! It is interesting to note that from 1680 to 1688, the Royal African Company sent 249 shiploads of slaves to the Indies and American Colonies, with a cargo of 60,000 Irish and Africans.
More than 14,000 died during passage. Following the Battle of the Boyne and the defeat of King James in 1691, the Irish slave trade had an overloaded inventory, and the slavers were making great profits. The Spanish slavers were a competition nuisance, so in 1713, the Treaty of Assiento was signed in which Spain granted England exclusive rights to the slave trade, and England agreed to supply Spanish colonies 4800 slaves a year for 30 years. England shipped tens of thousands of Irish prisoners after the 1798 Irish Rebellion to be sold as slaves in the Colonies and Australia. Curiously, of all the Irish shipped out as slaves, not one is known to have returned to Ireland to tell their tales.
Many, if not most, died on the ships transporting them or from overwork and abusive treatment on the plantations. The Irish that did obtain their freedom, frequently emigrated on to the American mainland, while others moved to adjoining islands. On Montserrat, seven of every 10 whites were Irish. Comparable 1678 census figures for the other Leeward Islands were: 26 per cent Irish on Antigua; 22 per cent on Nevis; and 10 per cent on St Christopher. Although 21,700 Irish slaves were purchased by Barbados planters from 1641 to 1649, there never seemed to have been more than about 8 to 10 thousand surviving at any one time. What happened to them? Well, the pages of the telephone directories on the West Indies islands are filled with Irish names, but virtually none of these “black Irish” know anything about their ancestors or their history. On the other hand, many West Indies natives spoke Gaelic right up until recent years.
They know they are strong survivors who descended from black white slaves, but only in the last few years have any of them taken an interest in their heritage +++++ There were horrendous abuses by the slavers, both to Africans and Irish. The records show that the British ship Zong was delayed by storms, and as their food was running low, they decided to dump 132 slaves overboard to drownso the crew would have plenty to eat.
If the slaves died due to “accident”, the loss was covered by insurance, but not if they starved to death. Another British ship, the Hercules averaged a 37% death rate on passages. The Atlas II landed with 65 of the 181 slaves found dead in their chains. But that is another story. The economics of slavery permeated all levels of English life. When the Bishop of Exeter learned that there was a movement afoot to ban the slave trade, he reluctantly agreed to sell his 655 slaves, provided he was properly compensated for the loss. Finally, in 1839, a bill was passed in England forbidding the slave trade, bringing an end to Irish misery. British commerce shifted to opium in China. An end to Irish misery? Well, perhaps just a pause.
During the following decade thousands of tons of butter, grain and beef were shipped from Ireland as over 2 million Irish starved to death in the great famine, and a great many others went to America and Australia. The population of Ireland fell from over 9 million to bottom out at less than 3 million. No movie blockbusters, book signing bonuses for authors writing of these horrors or collective guilt instilled in the masses for these abomitable crimes.
